I am a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies at Yale University.  My research is driven by the desire to address some of the world’s most vital environmental issues.  To date, my work focuses on the economics of water resources and pollution management. 

Here at Yale, I enjoy the opportunity to be a part of the Environmental and Natural Resource Economics groupMy dissertation committee includes Professors Robert Mendelsohn (Yale FES), Nicholas Muller (Middlebury College), and Jim Saiers (Yale FES).  Before returning to graduate school, I worked as a consultant, specializing in environmental litigation support for Fortune 500 companies and major law firms.
